Populating custom fields through zapier

  • Hi!
    I am creating a WP website for events and I’m using the ACF plugin to add start and end dates to my posts.
    I’m not creating my content manually, it is being uploaded zapier. The problem I’m having is that I dont know how to populate these custom fields from information on a database, or through zapier.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

  • Hi @patrobles

    Since ACF is “simply” a GUI for meta data what you really need is just to be able to map meta information from zapier to WordPress.

    I haven’t tried this myself but I would guess that either the integration supports meta data or it doesn’t. I think it’s likely it doesn’t.. :/
    In any case that’s the first and foremost requirement.. since you could just as easily use a native WP function like update_post_meta() to save these dates ACF don’t even have to be in the mix there. Atleast not in regards to the integration WP <> Zapier.

    Hope that answers some of your thoughts at least 🙂
